Spend spend spend

Tax tax tax

Spend spend spend

owebama is the original proponent of sequestration, therefore if it happens it is the republicrats’ fault.

Well, if Politico says it is a time bomb for the GOP, by all means, we should follow their advice.

The entire problem is the ineffectiveness of the republicans as politicians.

Fight fire with fire.

No mention that the Sequester was a White House idea. The GOP needs to point this out every time they have a chance.

“Republicans who are unwilling to compromise"

Uhhh, as I recall, sequestration WAS the compromise. A compromise initiated and pushed for by OBAMA! And Obama has not suggested any alternative cuts to substitute for the sequestration cuts. Barky OWNS this.

The sad reality is the majority of the American public does not want spending cuts. We are no different than Europe at this point. The population is far more secular, socialist and selfish than it used to be, and it is very hard for Republicans to oppose the Santa Claus president and his party. Oh sure, people will say the budget should be cut, but they don’t want anything cut that could in any way effect them. This is real problem, the public is being told by the education, media and entertainment establishments that big government is good, that it works, and that debt doesn’t matter - and they believe it. The reasons the GOP typically back down on these issues is that the public simply isn’t with them.

Of course the GOP will get the blame. The “media” direct the low-info sheeple to blame Repubs, and they’ll do it on cue.

Sequestration was Obama’s idea. The msm won’t ever point that out however, as they will carry water for their Savior one more time.

Get used to calling it “Obama’s sequestration”. He was the creator after all even though the MSM would have you to believe the GOP was responsible.

As usual, Obama and the DemocRATs play 3-dimensional chess while the hapless Republicans play Tiddly Winks and wonder why they can’t get a break.

One "headline" a 5% cut at defense after 4 years of increases totalling 14%. Someone help me with this math.

I was a vet, I know that in late July and early aug departments on every base are spending on things to back up fill up or make life more comfortable. We got new dorm furniture. Come on it is time to cut back for real in every darn department - that would be a winner for republicans, but they want to spend!!
